For Immediate Release

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI – (July 20, 2022) – FANUC America, the leading supplier of CNCs, robotics and ROBOMACHINEs has been in the CNC business for 45 years and the robotics industry for 40 years. 

FANUC USA Corporation was established in 1977.  Originally located in Elk Grove Village, IL, FANUC USA’s first product was the FANUC SYSTEM 6 CNC, with an installed general purpose microprocessor.    By 1981, FANUC USA expanded its facility, and there were 80K FANUC NCs/CNCs installed worldwide. 

In 1982, GMFanuc Robotics was established with a staff of 70 people working in a 50K square foot facility in Troy, MI.  The first customer installation was a 10-robot paint line at GM’s assembly plant in Doraville, GA. 

Today, there are over 40 million FANUC products working in manufacturing facilities all over the world.  FANUC America employs 1,500+ professionals, occupies more than one million square feet of space in Oakland County, MI, and has 23 regional offices throughout North and South America. 

“I’m so proud of how far we’ve come in the automation industry, and grateful to all of our current and retired employees for their dedicated service,” said Mike Cicco, president and CEO of FANUC America.  “As we reflect and celebrate these milestone anniversaries, we also look forward to continued growth and success.”

In August, FANUC America will hold employee celebrations to commemorate both anniversaries.
